HE IS THE ONLY WAY TO DESTINY & SATISFACTION
“So that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also His offspring.’ Therefore, since we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, something shaped by art and man’s devising.” (Acts 17:27-29)
Our life’s meaning can only come from God. He is the only one that can define us because he is the one who made us.
“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:10)
The moment we came to Him, He tapped us into the perfect plans He has for us. If we struggle to know the will of God, the first step is to bring Jesus into our situations. Let Him change things around and show us the destiny He has for us. Jesus is the purpose of our life. No other religion can or will say that about their founder or god or deity.
We all know what it’s like to be thirsty in our souls: thirsty for love, for success, for attention. Without Jesus, people will always look for a different drink. They will look to sex, entertainment, acceptance, validation, anything to fill them up, to satisfy themselves. But nothing in this world can satisfy like Jesus Christ. Long ago, a woman at a well discovered this truth:
A woman of Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, “Give Me a drink.” For His disciples had gone away into the city to buy food.
Then the woman of Samaria said to Him, “How is it that You, being a Jew, ask a drink from me, a Samaritan woman?” For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.
Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.”
The woman said to Him, “Sir, You have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep. Where then do You get that living water? Are You greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well, and drank from it himself, as well as his sons and his livestock?”
Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”
The woman said to Him, “Sir, give me this water, that I may not thirst, nor come here to draw.” (John 4:7-15)
Over the two thousand years since He came, billions of people have found satisfaction in Him. It can be the same with us. We need to turn to Him when we grow hungry and thirsty and let Him fill us.
